Track Name: Endless Summer
Endless Summer

I think of you everywhere I go
Cotton candy for the drive-in show
With a runabout down by the pier
We could run away so far from here

And we could have an endless summer
And we could have an endless summer

Roll your window all the way down
I waited all year just to hear this sound
Motor music and the highway hum
I still think one day she will come

And we could have an endless summer
And we could have an endless summer

I would search in the sun all day
From old Cape Cod to Monterey
Just to meet you anywhere
At the beach, in a park, on the street – baby I don’t care

And we could have an endless summer
And we could have an endless summer

I think of you everywhere I go
I hear your voice whisper low
Feel us together, walking slow
When I find her I will know

And we could have an endless summer
And we could have an endless summer
And we could have an endless summer
Track Name: Everywhere Tonight
Everywhere Tonight

There’s a sound that’s coming on strong
There’s a feeling that’s been gone too long
There’s a way to say what I want to say
And a way to do what I want to do
But I can’t … do it without you, do it without you

Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight

You’re a straight line and I’m a curve
We’re from two different worlds
You’re inside and I’m out
Gonna get you, there’s no doubt
But I can’t … believe it without you, believe it without you

Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight

I see it in your face
I hear it in your voice
And I know … you’re ready now

Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight

There’s a sound that’s coming on strong
There’s a feeling that’s been gone too long
There’s a way to say what I want to say
And a way to do what I want to do
But I can’t … do it without you, do it without you

Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight, you can feel it
Everywhere tonight
Track Name: All for That
All for That

Don’t know why you and I can never agree
Is it wrong to change the song, but not the key
When you say good morning, I think goodnight
You think it’s a warning, you may be right
Or maybe not … I’m all you got

And you know, you know I’m all for that
And you know, you know I’m all for that

Every day feels the same when you’re so alone
Tear a page, get onstage, into the unknown
I think I see where we’re going to
You think love will see us through
Or maybe not … I’m all you got

And you know, you know I’m all for that
And you know, you know I’m all for that

A bird hit my window this afternoon
Sometimes things just end too soon

Is it true, it was you behind my back?
Looking here, looking there after the fact
I call on you but the lines are crossed
You know the call before a coin is tossed
Or maybe not … I’m all you got

And you know, you know I’m all for that
And you know, you know I’m all for that
And you know, you know I’m all for that
And you know, you know I’m all for that
Track Name: Gotta Let You Go
Gotta Let You Go


How can something so good … always treat me so bad
A little taste of you … always leaves me sad
You’re so familiar to me now
But I should break away somehow
I need to make a change right now, right now

I gotta let you go
Gotta let you go-oh-woah
I gotta let you go
Gotta let you go-oh-woah, go-oh-woah

I wanna be much more … than I am today
I wanna live my life … in a sweeter way
There may be storm clouds up ahead
And angry skies are turning red
But I’ll find sunny days instead, instead

I believe in the power of love, and in blessings from above
I am weak but I am strong, I have strength to carry on, carry on

I gotta let you go
Gotta let you go-oh-woah
I gotta let you go
Gotta let you go-oh-woah, go-oh-woah

I’m through spinning my wheels … now I’m shifting gears
No more wasted dreams … no more wasted years
There may be storm clouds up ahead
And angry skies are turning red
But I’ll find sunny days instead, instead

I gotta let you go (Yes I gotta let you go)
Gotta let you go-oh-woah
I gotta let you go (Yes I gotta let you go)
Gotta let you go-oh-woah, go-oh-woah, oh
